I have all the blocks finished now, so just need to start assembling the top. I think I prefer this layout -- with the white squares marching diagonally from left to right and the blacks going in the opposite direction. I like the sharp contrasts in the black/white/colors -- really makes the colors pop.
Before I started working on this today, I thought about the fact that I don't particularly like putting backings together and made myself seam one for my double four patch quilt that I made last year. So the backing and the top are laying on the longarm now. And after working on this one today, the other one sure is boring. I need to decide how to quilt it and then I'll probably give it away!
I was going to do some hand quilting today, too -- but Bill came in from playing in the woods, so decided to get on the computer. Probably if I didn't spend so much time on the computer, I could get a lot more done. vbg
